PyCM: Python Confusion Matrix


built with Python3 PyPI version Document Discord Channel

Table of contents

Overview

PyCM is a multi-class confusion matrix library written in Python that supports both input data vectors and direct matrix, and a proper tool for post-classification model evaluation that supports most classes and overall statistics parameters. PyCM is the swiss-army knife of confusion matrices, targeted mainly at data scientists that need a broad array of metrics for predictive models and accurate evaluation of a large variety of classifiers.

>>> cm
pycm.ConfusionMatrix(classes: ['L1', 'L2', 'L3'])

Position

position method is added in version 2.8 in order to find the indexes of observations in predict_vector which made TP, TN, FP, FN.

>>> cm.position()
{0: {'FN': [], 'FP': [0, 7], 'TP': [1, 4, 9], 'TN': [2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11]}, 1: {'FN': [5, 10], 'FP': [3], 'TP': [6], 'TN': [0, 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11]}, 2: {'FN': [0, 3, 7], 'FP': [5, 10], 'TP': [2, 8, 11], 'TN': [1, 4, 6, 9]}}

>>> cm.to_array()

       [0, 1, 2],
       [2, 1, 3]])
>>> cm.to_array(normalized=True)

       [0.     , 0.33333, 0.66667],
       [0.33333, 0.16667, 0.5    ]])

       [0.22222, 0.77778]])

Plot

plot method is added in version 3.0 in order to plot a confusion matrix using Matplotlib or Seaborn.

>>> cm.plot()
>>> from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
>>> cm.plot(cmap=plt.cm.Greens, number_label=True, plot_lib="matplotlib")
>>> cm.plot(cmap=plt.cm.Reds, normalized=True, number_label=True, plot_lib="seaborn")

ROC curve

ROCCurve, added in version 3.7, is devised to compute the Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) or simply ROC curve. In ROC curves, the Y axis represents the True Positive Rate, and the X axis represents the False Positive Rate. Thus, the ideal point is located at the top left of the curve, and a larger area under the curve represents better performance. ROC curve is a graphical representation of binary classifiers' performance. In PyCM, ROCCurve binarizes the output based on the "One vs. Rest" strategy to provide an extension of ROC for multi-class classifiers. Getting the actual labels vector, the target probability estimates of the positive classes, and the list of ordered labels of classes, this method is able to compute and plot TPR-FPR pairs for different discrimination thresholds and compute the area under the ROC curve.

>>> crv = ROCCurve(actual_vector=np.array([1, 1, 2, 2]), probs=np.array([[0.1, 0.9], [0.4, 0.6], [0.35, 0.65], [0.8, 0.2]]), classes=[2, 1])
>>> crv.thresholds
[0.1, 0.2, 0.35, 0.4, 0.6, 0.65, 0.8, 0.9]
>>> auc_trp = crv.area()
>>> auc_trp[1]
0.75
>>> auc_trp[2]
0.75

Precision-Recall curve

PRCurve, added in version 3.7, is devised to compute the Precision-Recall curve in which the Y axis represents the Precision, and the X axis represents the Recall of a classifier. Thus, the ideal point is located at the top right of the curve, and a larger area under the curve represents better performance. Precision-Recall curve is a graphical representation of binary classifiers' performance. In PyCM, PRCurve binarizes the output based on the "One vs. Rest" strategy to provide an extension of this curve for multi-class classifiers. Getting the actual labels vector, the target probability estimates of the positive classes, and the list of ordered labels of classes, this method is able to compute and plot Precision-Recall pairs for different discrimination thresholds and compute the area under the curve.

>>> crv = PRCurve(actual_vector=np.array([1, 1, 2, 2]), probs=np.array([[0.1, 0.9], [0.4, 0.6], [0.35, 0.65], [0.8, 0.2]]), classes=[2, 1])
>>> crv.thresholds
[0.1, 0.2, 0.35, 0.4, 0.6, 0.65, 0.8, 0.9]
>>> auc_trp = crv.area()
>>> auc_trp[1]
0.29166666666666663
>>> auc_trp[2]
0.29166666666666663

Parameter recommender

This option has been added in version 1.9 to recommend the most related parameters considering the characteristics of the input dataset. The suggested parameters are selected according to some characteristics of the input such as being balance/imbalance and binary/multi-class. All suggestions can be categorized into three main groups: imbalanced dataset, binary classification for a balanced dataset, and multi-class classification for a balanced dataset. The recommendation lists have been gathered according to the respective paper of each parameter and the capabilities which had been claimed by the paper.

>>> cm.imbalance
False
>>> cm.binary
False
>>> cm.recommended_list
['MCC', 'TPR Micro', 'ACC', 'PPV Macro', 'BCD', 'Overall MCC', 'Hamming Loss', 'TPR Macro', 'Zero-one Loss', 'ERR', 'PPV Micro', 'Overall ACC']

is_imbalanced parameter has been added in version 3.3, so the user can indicate whether the concerned dataset is imbalanced or not. As long as the user does not provide any information in this regard, the automatic detection algorithm will be used.

>>> cm = ConfusionMatrix(y_actu, y_pred, is_imbalanced=True)
>>> cm.imbalance
True
>>> cm = ConfusionMatrix(y_actu, y_pred, is_imbalanced=False)
>>> cm.imbalance
False

Compare

In version 2.0, a method for comparing several confusion matrices is introduced. This option is a combination of several overall and class-based benchmarks. Each of the benchmarks evaluates the performance of the classification algorithm from good to poor and give them a numeric score. The score of good and poor performances are 1 and 0, respectively.

After that, two scores are calculated for each confusion matrices, overall and class-based. The overall score is the average of the score of seven overall benchmarks which are Landis & Koch, Cramer, Matthews, Goodman-Kruskal's Lambda A, Goodman-Kruskal's Lambda B, Krippendorff's Alpha, and Pearson's C. In the same manner, the class-based score is the average of the score of six class-based benchmarks which are Positive Likelihood Ratio Interpretation, Negative Likelihood Ratio Interpretation, Discriminant Power Interpretation, AUC value Interpretation, Matthews Correlation Coefficient Interpretation and Yule's Q Interpretation. It should be noticed that if one of the benchmarks returns none for one of the classes, that benchmarks will be eliminated in total averaging. If the user sets weights for the classes, the averaging over the value of class-based benchmark scores will transform to a weighted average.

If the user sets the value of by_class boolean input True, the best confusion matrix is the one with the maximum class-based score. Otherwise, if a confusion matrix obtains the maximum of both overall and class-based scores, that will be reported as the best confusion matrix, but in any other case, the compared object doesn’t select the best confusion matrix.

>>> cm2 = ConfusionMatrix(matrix={0: {0: 2, 1: 50, 2: 6}, 1: {0: 5, 1: 50, 2: 3}, 2: {0: 1, 1: 7, 2: 50}})
>>> cm3 = ConfusionMatrix(matrix={0: {0: 50, 1: 2, 2: 6}, 1: {0: 50, 1: 5, 2: 3}, 2: {0: 1, 1: 55, 2: 2}})
>>> cp = Compare({"cm2": cm2, "cm3": cm3})
>>> print(cp)
Best : cm2

Rank  Name   Class-Score       Overall-Score
1     cm2    0.50278           0.58095
2     cm3    0.33611           0.52857

>>> cp.best
pycm.ConfusionMatrix(classes: [0, 1, 2])
>>> cp.sorted
['cm2', 'cm3']
>>> cp.best_name
'cm2'

Multilabel confusion matrix

From version 4.0, MultiLabelCM has been added to calculate class-wise or sample-wise multilabel confusion matrices. In class-wise mode, confusion matrices are calculated for each class, and in sample-wise mode, they are generated per sample. All generated confusion matrices are binarized with a one-vs-rest transformation.

>>> mlcm = MultiLabelCM(actual_vector=[{"cat", "bird"}, {"dog"}], predict_vector=[{"cat"}, {"dog", "bird"}], classes=["cat", "dog", "bird"])
>>> mlcm.actual_vector_multihot
[[1, 0, 1], [0, 1, 0]]
>>> mlcm.predict_vector_multihot
[[1, 0, 0], [0, 1, 1]]
>>> mlcm.get_cm_by_class("cat").print_matrix()
Predict 0       1       
Actual
0       1       0       

1       0       1       

>>> mlcm.get_cm_by_sample(0).print_matrix()
Predict 0       1       
Actual
0       1       0       

1       1       1 

Online help

online_help function is added in version 1.1 in order to open each statistics definition in web browser

>>> from pycm import online_help
>>> online_help("J")
>>> online_help("SOA1(Landis & Koch)")
>>> online_help(2)
  • List of items are available by calling online_help() (without argument)
  • If PyCM website is not available, set alt_link = True (new in version 2.4)
